According to the National Institute of Mental Health, there are more than a quarter of American Adults that experience depression or anxiety in any year. There are many others that are in need of help with smoking, relationships, jobs, death, substance abuse and other issues. All these problems can become debilitating.
Therapy is also called psychotherapy or counseling and your meeting with a therapist to help you resolve behaviors, beliefs, feelings and or somatic responses. No one person can tell you what exactly what your therapy process will be like, however, you will establish goals and work on steps to define what you want to accomplish.
Your therapist will help you, your partner, family or group. You can expect that your therapist will support you, listen attentively, model a healthy positive relationship, give you positive feedback and follows ethical guidelines. Good Therapy should be tailored to you and your experiences.
